Travel: St Moritz Cottage Antipolo
Well-hidden in the sloping hills of Antipolo are my two fave places for dining and relaxation – – Vieux Chalet restaurant and St. Moritz Cottage.
I highly recommend dining at Vieux Chalet and staying at St. Moritz Cottage. These two comprise the perfect weekend getaway, as they both guarantee an extremely relaxing stay and they guarantee a truly excellent gastronomic experience.

Others: It is highly imperative that you call/send an SMS/email for a reservation first. To guarantee personalized service, the St Moritz Cottage only has three cozy rooms.
For photographers, I highly recommend that you bring your super zoom lens. The super zoom lens ensures that you get an interesting shot of the city lights below. Learn from my mistake – – er area for improvement – – I forgot to bring my zoom lens. I only brought my wide angle, hence I got teeny weeny city lights shots with lots of trees in the foreground. Dang! Oh well, I’ll be back next year to capture that city lights shot.
